  • Am I just unlucky

    The other half has come back from the garage and found a rear nearside tyre badly damaged along with the wheel.
    Neither of us recall doing it and we are wondering if it has happened when it went into the dealer on Tuesday.
    So far I have spent
    £160 on refurbishing 4 wheels
    £86 repainting the front bumper
    £45 on a new mirror glass
    and now £180 on a new tyre plus the wheel being refinished again.

    If you did it you would know if it is that bad ...
    If the dealer did it ... well good luck are unlikely to get them to admit it.
    As a matter of course I will get the dealer to note 'no damage'.
    I have one damage wheel ... my wife said the kerb jump out at her ..
    So I will have that fixed Monday.
    With my Porsche .. I never damage the wheels as you adopt a practice that saves them.

      If we had noticed on Tuesday/Wednesday then I might have had some luck with the dealer, but as it is now Saturday we haven't.
      I am just hacked off.

            Which dealer do you normally go to... I need a boost in my shares portfolio

            Sorry to hear your bad luck... Last 3 new cars I've bought I have always managed to damage them within 3 months of getting them...usually self-inflicted

              Dealer is Hinton in Bath. Tyre is being supplied by a local tyre fitter not Vauxhall

                Tell me about it, within 2 days of having the car, with heavy snowfall, I (foolishly) tried to venture out to work, camber in road directed me straight to nice high granite kerbs!! Completely minced the passenger side alloys. Still not repaired yet, does anyone know where i can buy 2 new alloys?
